A strat is really good, but for only a 175$ sounds like it doen's any good pick-ups ar hardware, so check it out and aske the people at the store.

what do you play now? why do you want a new one? upgrade? backup? cheap beater?

squires are usually entry level / learner models. the jay turser looks to be slightly better quality but it's not going to be a huge leap. basically you're considering buying new models of the kind of guitars that most people pick up for cheap from a friend or pawn shop to learn on.

if you've already been playing a little while and want to step up to something with a little more quality i'd recommend holding off while you save up to double you're budget and start looking at guitars in the $500-700 range.

there are also agile guitars Rondo Music Home Page if you don't mind buying online without trying first. they have $100 strat knockoffs. whatsitoosit picked one up a while back and seems to really dig it.

I'd save your money for a few months and move up the ladder to something far better.
You'll be glad you did.
Not much room for improving sound on cheap Strats
